Suebsaeng: Fox News Persuaded Trump to Release the FISA Abuse Memo
SUEBSAENG: "He was actually listening to people on his own television screen a lot more than he was listening to, for instance, his own FBI director. I mean, some Fox News personalities such as Sean hannity do speak to the president rather often. But the funny thing is you don’t actually have to get the president on the phone to influence him in a deep way when it comes to politics and policy if you’re on Fox News. Our sources in the White House have told us repeatedly that before the president had seen the memo, his opinion of it had been shaped almost completely by conservative media and Fox News channel that he had been absorbing, not at all close to how it was being shaped by his briefings or interrogation communities."
